DEAR DEIDRE: ALCOHOL has cost me every job I’ve ever had. Now my partner – the mother of my two children – is getting ready to walk out on me.
I’ve always worried about money, as we didn’t have much when I was young.
So when I left school, I worked really hard training as a solicitor. I’m 28.
But as the debt from studying started to mount up, I turned to booze. It would stop my brain whirring, at least for a while.
Soon my boss caught on and let me go. It’s been the same with four other jobs since. I have tried to go sober but managed a best of 64 days before caving.
My girlfriend, who’s also 28, is sick of me constantly letting her down and acting like a drunk around our two kids.
